Boatsetter Expands Further Into Fishing Experiences

Boatsetter Expands Further Into Fishing Experiences

Boatsetter, the leading boat rental and charter marketplace in the U.S., recently expanded its focus on experiences with the launch of Boatsetter Fishing, a team and service dedicated to fishing charters and fishing boats for rent on the platform. The launch makes it easier for anglers to find and book fishing experiences across the U.S., from the Florida Keys to San Diego and Hawaii, and in international destinations like Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas.

An Easier Way to Book Fishing Charters

The Boatsetter Fishing team is led by founders of a previous marketplace for fishing charters and guides, Fisher Guiding. Boatsetter acquired Fisher Guiding and brought over their charter supply and expertise for its fishing launch in Spring 2021. Now, the Boatsetter fleet includes over 825 fishing charters and fishing boats for rent with the goal of making it simpler and more accessible for clients and captains to arrange fishing trips through the Boatsetter website or app (available for iOS and Android).

Airbnb for Boats

Boatsetter has over 4,500 boats available to book, from charters offering all types of experiences to boats available for rent with or without a captain from fellow boat owners.

Peer-to-peer boat rental is made possible by Boatsetter’s exclusive insurance partnership with BoatU.S. and GEICO Marine. For boat owners without a commercial insurance policy, the peer-to-peer boat rental insurance policy covers rentals booked through Boatsetter. This enables boaters to rent many types of vessels they might not find from the average rental operation or marina.

Similar to renting a home from hosts on Airbnb, local boaters often share tips for navigating their local waterways. Many owners of fishing boats point out favorite fishing locations marked on their GPS or fish finder. Some boat owners also provide fishing gear including rods & tackle for renters unable to bring their own.

  • Rent a boat near you or when traveling, from 2 hours up to multi-day rentals
  • Charters for fishing, cruising, parties, etc. 
  • Sea trial boats by renting before you buy

Make Money Renting Out Your Boat

Listing a boat for rent is a way to share access to the water and meet fellow passionate boaters. Users with a boat listed on the platform also benefit from increased trust when renting boats since the owner or operator they’re interested in renting from can see they have boating experience as a member of the Boatsetter owner community.

Boatsetter enables choosing to rent your boat with or without a captain, with access to one of the largest databases of USCG licensed captains to keep your boat in good hands.
